jdmorehouseA Year Later  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 6, 2013

Rraine needed this peak, so we set off Sunday morning nearly a year after I climbed it the first time. We found a really nice route up the ridge south of the main drainage and followed a series of horse trails (wild horses abound in the area) up the ridge all the way to the summit. Very nice weather and good views. An easy peak, but I enjoyed way more than I did last year. The road in was in much worse shape than last year, but still passable. We parked just below 5800'.

The day before my 63rd birthday. A pretty nondescript climb. The petroglyphs at summit are the highlight of the trip. Clouds came in and blocked all the views from the top. On the way down there is a nice spire off to the right of the road that added interest. Pretty good holds from the back of it.

Alien-themed register box inside the DPS ammo can indicates the interest in studying the skies to the north of 95. Summited with Barry and Abby after using Beffort's Afoot and Afield guide for road instructions, along with this page. The petroglyphs are very nice and a special part of the hike.

Successful summit by 13 members of Sierra Club's Desert Peak section, the day after we summited Hayford Peak.

We used the DPS guide. We started at the guide's 2WD starting point, but the road there is definitely now 4WD and high clearance. From there we accidentally walked too far up the 4wd dirt road and missed the NE ridge described in the DPS guide. Rather, we ended up going SW over one ridge point up to and over Pt 2311 Meters, then NE then SW up to the summit. This added some distance and time, but not too bad and all and all a pleasant route up. Brief tough brush only for 50 feet in the creek bed at the onset of the XC. Vegetation for the remainder of the ascent and descent required some thoughtful route picking and occasional ducking but was ok.

The summit itself was far superior to the windy, flat topped and antenna strewn higher neighbor the day before, Hayford Peak. Telescope, Sierras, Area 51 etc.

We descended to the northeast via the DPS route, seeing many petroglyphs on the rocks below the summit.

First was in Sept 2003. Made a loop over the summit down through thick pinyons to E.

The higher, detached ridge to SE is much tougher.

I thought this peak was rather so-so. Pleasant enough day for a hike, though. Trip Report

Easy hike with a good group of friends. Excellent views of the Sierra Nevada to the west. Also some decent crags to explore and climb around on below the summit, for those interested.
